Once again, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been proven to be a liar.
After having repeatedly denied having an affair with political consultant Tim Mynett, Omar revealed on her Instagram account that the two are now married.
While this marriage may seem like a whirlwind affair, that is hardly the case.
There have been rumors floating around about Mynett and Omar for quite some time.
In fact, Mynett’s wife filed for divorce and specifically mentioned the alleged affair with Omar in her petition.
When Omar was asked point-blank if she was involved with Mynett, she stated, “No, I am not.
“I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.”
It is a fairly safe assumption to now assume that Omar’s statement was a blatant lie.
Her lie is very much relevant now to allegations made about campaign finance violations.
Mynett’s ex claimed Omar was paying for personal travel for Mynett during the campaign and writing it off as campaign expenses.
Rather than conspiracy theory, this very much seems like what was happening now.
Let’s also not forget that Omar and Mynett were caught at a restaurant allegedly holding hands while she was making an appearance at a political event in California.
The restaurant was some 20 miles away from where the event was being held, as the two were believed at the time to have been trying to avoid attention by going somewhere out of the way, but she was recognized.
Keeping the Money in the Family
So, not only was Omar lying to everyone about the alleged affair, but she is also paying Mynett a tidy sum out of her campaign funds.
Breitbart reported that in the fourth quarter of 2019, her campaign has paid Mynett’s firm $215,000.
In all the firm was paid $525,000.
These payments are now the subject of an FCC complaint by the E Street Group, stating, “If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature.”
Omar is learning the D.C. game rather quickly… keep the money in the family, just like Joe Biden.
